    Tokyo Art Center: Alfons Mucha & Yayoi Kusama

    I’d been meaning to take an outfit photo at this reflection-gasmic structure leading to Shibuya Mark City that Ottie and I would pass by to and fro our lodgings. It’s a busy walkway, especially in the day, but I wasn’t going to let embarrassment get in the way of my vanity.

I suppose that growing up in a house surrounded by decorative stucco walls must have rubbed off me in one way or another – a memory from so long ago suddenly surfaces in which I grew bored and started an obsessive attempt to peel the uneven surfaces off with my fingernails (to no avail). Later when I started noticing the interiors of other people’s houses, I realised that flat walls were the norm. While the plain wall has its appeal in its simplicity, I think I’ve always been one to favour mitigated chaos in the tactile and non-tactile.  I liked this table texture…
